Ultimate 787 v1.2.0 Released

QualityWings Simulations, a developer of much known Boeing 787 Dreamliner for Prepar3D, today released a new, long-awaited update. The update does not only feature bug fixes and stability improvements, but also the last, and longest member of the 787 family – the Boeing 787-10.

A quote by QualityWings:

“We’ve also added VATSIM transponder compatibility, wheel chocks, custom SELCAL IDs, engine windmilling and a new feature which we think is really cool. The QW Load Agent!

Based on a transportation statistics database, the QW Load Agent will generate a realistic payload factor for your particular route. With the payload data coming from historic real life flights, you will also see this change depending on the season and even the day of the week. “

If you already own this beauty, this update is free of charge for you, and the only way you can update the aircraft is to uninstall it and install it again. This is caused mainly because of the scope of this update.
